This seminar will give an overview of the main components of the global value chain for hydrocarbons, including upstream and downstream oil and gas operations. The sessions will focus on the upstream sector and cover international oil and gas exploration and production contracts commonly used in the industry, and key legal, commercial and financial issues involved in international oil and gas development projects. The seminar will also include an interactive negotiation workshop and a hand-on session on economics and valuation of oil and gas projects, as well as a session on the resolution of oil and gas disputes. Guest lecturers with practical experience in the industry will be invited to join us throughout the semester.
